Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand Studies Network (ACNZSN) Newsletter – 02/04/21

Dear All,

Please find below the latest news, opportunities, and publications in Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies 🙂



This is just a reminder about the Call for Papers for Volume 1, Issue 2 of ACNZSN’s Journal of Australian, Canadian, and Aotearoa New Zealand Studies (JACANZS). The deadline for submissions is 30 June 2021.

Dr. Ethel Tungohan, who is a public supporter of ACNZSN, recently launched a wonderfully refreshing new Podcast series called ‘Academic Aunties’. In the brilliant first episode she had a very open and frank conversation with Dr. Mariam Georgis and Dr. Nisha Nath.

Professor Martin Thomas talked to journalist and academic Associate Professor Chris Wallace about ‘Gender Politics and Australian Politics’ as a part of a joint ANU Australian Studies Institute/KCL Menzies Australia Institute podcast. 

The Migration Research Division of the International Organization for Migration is looking for academic and applied researchers on gender and migration who would be interested to contribute to a one-year research project funded by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada on ‘The impacts of COVID-19 on migration and migrants from a gender perspective’. The deadline for the submission of proposals is 25 April 2021. Further details can be found here.

The Royal Society of Canada recently published a report on ‘Supporting Canada’s COVID-19 Resilience and Recovery Through Robust Immigration Policy and Programs’.

Grace Gassin also recently published a blog post on ‘Migrant and international student perspectives on Covid-19 in Aotearoa’ on the Te Papa website.
